Roving flock of around a dozen Lesser Goldfinches on garden perennials that have gone to seed. Haven't seen them since spring when they were after the forget-me-not and columbine seeds.
Northern Flickers always present in garden and neighbor hood.
With the arrival of the GOSP and WCSP my sparrow flock is complete for the season. Song Sparrow, House Sparrow, Fox Sparrow, Golden-crowned Sparrow and White-crowned Sparrow. Wish list, a Lincoln Sparrow and a White-throated Sparrow.
